Black Sunday for women's Hawkeyes

Last week, the day after Christmas was called “Black Friday” for all the specials shoppers could get after the holiday.
Two days later, I thought it was “Black Sunday” for me after the Hawkeye women got beat 69-60 at Carver and the Chicago Bears got knocked out of the playoffs 31-24 at Houston.
The loss to Purdue is one of the many reasons I would have a tough time being a head coach.
